current laws and said that law enforce-
ment officials are in compliance with
the Constitution,
The PATRIOT Act "has given the
Justice Department and the FBI a
greater ability to protect the American
people," Justice Department
spokesman Mark Corallo said.
"Everything that we have done has
been fully within the bounds of the
U.S. Constitution and the statutory
authority of the U.S. Congress."
Corallo added that the PATRIOT Act
passed by a strong bipartisan majority
in both the House and the Senate and
that the Foreign Intelligence Surveil-
lance Act of 1978 maintains govern-
mental checks and balances by
requiring law enforcement agencies to
obtain a warrant before proceeding
with an investigation.
"All the PATRIOT Act does is
broaden the scope of information
that can be sought through a FISA
warrant. You still have to go through
a federal judge to get a warrant,"

Corallo said.
Sanders argues that while the cur-
rent system recognizes checks and
balances, it weakens civil rights by
placing the proceedings in a secret
federal court.
"We're proposing to move back to
the old process which I think
worked better. Under the new sys-
tem, the (FBI's) limitations are
extremely low," he said.
But U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas)
is co-sponsoring the bill and believes
that many aspects of the PATRIOT
Act are actually just an excuse for law
enforcement agencies to violate priva-
cy without justification.
"A lot of it is just what law
enforcement has always wanted.
to root through your personal infor-
mation. To us, this is simply not
permissible," Paul spokesman Jeff
Deist said. "We're not going to
make the country any safer by vio-
lating the Fourth Amendment."
The specific ramifications of the
proposal will be publicly announced
Thursday. FBI investigators declined
to comment on the proposal.

ulin toxin, and inspectors are analyzing the contents.
Iraq is readying a letter to the United Nations that
proposes verifying it has gotten rid of anthrax and
deadly VX nerve agent.
Even Iraqi scientists who helped make missiles
and chemical and biological weapons of mass
destruction have begun to give private interviews to
inspectors, something all but three had refused to do
since December. Another scientist was interviewed
yesterday, the fourth in as many days. The United
Nations has asked to speak to more than 30 scientists
since December.
Clearly Iraq is appealing to members of the U.N.
Security Council, who are considering a draft resolu-
tion by the United States, Britain and Spain that
would declare Iraq to be evading inspections, a step
that would likely lead to war.
"The best time to press a point is when you have a
meeting of the Security Council coming up," said
Blix's deputy, Demetrius Perricos.
The United States expects a vote on its resolution
"quite soon" after the chief inspectors report to the
council on Friday, U.S. Ambassador John Negro-
ponte said yesterday.
"All indications are that the vote would be next
week," a U.S. official said, speaking on condition of

France, Russia and China - three of the five veto-
holding members of the council - all pushed for
more inspections instead of war.
"But Iraq must cooperate more, more actively,"
French President Jacques Chirac said yesterday in
Algeria. "Together and in peace, we must keep strong
pressure on it to attain the objective we have set: the
elimination of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq."
But the new cooperation appears to be having little
influence on the audience that in the end will mean
the most - the White House.
After months of stressing disarmament, President
Bush now speaks more frequently of "regime
change," saying that for Iraq to avoid war, Saddam
Hussein will have to go - something few Iraqis can
even imagine.
In a sense, the war has already begun. U.S. war-
planes enforcing no fly zones in northern and south-
ern Iraq have become much more aggressive in
recent days, and have begun to go beyond their tradi-
tional targets of anti-aircraft weapons.
They are now attacking surface-to-surface missile
batteries they say are in range of U.S. troops in
Kuwait or of positions U.S. troops could take up in
Turkey - although the stated purpose of the no fly
zones is to protect Shiite Muslims in the south and
Kurds in the north.
An Iraqi military spokesman told the official Iraqi

News Agency yesterday that a U.S. airstrike Sunday
night killed six civilians and wounded 15 in southern
Basra province. There was no way to verify the
American warplanes attacked four more military
communications facilities and one air defense facility
yesterday, the U.S. Central Command said.
Iraq warned Sunday night that it could stop
destroying its missiles if the United States decides to
go to war without U.N. authorization.
"If it turns out at an early stage during this month
that America is not going to a legal way, then why
should we continue?" asked Lt. Gen. Amer al-Saadi,
Saddam's scientific adviser.
At the sprawling al-Taji military camp, 20 miles
north of Baghdad, workers used bulldozers to crush
six Al Samoud 2 missiles, inspectors' spokesman
Hiro Ueki said. U.N. inspectors in blue baseball caps
supervised the destruction.
Workers also destroyed two empty warheads made
for the Al Samoud 2. Warheads for the crushed mis-
siles - which were already armed - were removed
for destruction later at another site because of the
potential danger.
The workers destroyed four missiles on Saturday
and six more Sunday, meaning that in three days,
Iraq has crushed 16 of its 100-odd missiles. The
United Nations says it expects Iraq to pick up the
pace in the coming days.

said the group's message is clear.
"We are opposed to a preemptive
unilateral attack by the U.S.,"
Greene said. In addition to perform-
ances, many groups are raising
money for charities, such as
Amnesty International and Doctors
Without Borders.
LSA senior Corey Triplett and his
recently-formed student theater
group, Makeshift Theatre Troupe,
organized the event, which was per-
formed on the steps of the Michigan
Union, in the Diag and outside the
Media Union.
Despite the freezing weather,
about 10 University students and
seven Royal Shakespeare Company
actors participated.
Triplett said he organized the
event to take part in the global
demonstration. "It combines two
things I love - theater and
activism," he said.
"We're getting information out
about the anti-war movement that
keeps growing across the country."
Triplett added that despite its age,
the play's message is relevant.
"Nonviolence and anti-war move-
ments have been an issue since
B.C.," he said.
Members of the Royal Shake-
speare Company expressed their
enthusiasm at participating in the
Kieron Jecchinis, an actor with
the company, said the actors were
participating because they think the
war against Iraq is wrong.

rounding this particular dietary supplement."
Ephedra as an herbal supplement is often found
in many over-the-counter products designed to help
lose weight, enhance sports performance and
increase energy.
The FDA said there was an increased risk for
users of ephedra who are under the age of 18,
exercise frequently or use caffeine or other stimu-
lants. They added that health problems were not
only limited to those who had extended use of

ephedra -- indicating it could cause problems
with first-time users.
A recent study released by RAND Corp., a gov-
ernment-funded think tank, shows that using
ephedra can lead to higher risks of heart palpita-
tions, tremors and insomnia. The FDA said the
RAND report also finds only limited evidence of
the health benefits of the herbal supplement.
A study released last week reviewed more than
16,000 adverse events reports involving ephedra,
including two deaths, four heart attacks, nine
strokes, one seizure and five psychiatric cases, said
American Medical Association Trustee Ron Davis

in a written statement.
The warning label will "lay the legal ground-
work needed for further regulatory restrictions,"
FDA Commissioner Mark McClellan said in a
written statement.
Under the Dietary Supplement Health and
Education Act of 1994, the FDA does not review
dietary supplements for safety and efficacy
before they go on the market. But they reserve
the power to take the drug off the market if it
presents a significant risk.
The FDA regulates synthetic ephedrine found in
some prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs

such as nasal decongestants. It is the same sub-
stance as the active ingredient in ephedra, but the
FDA said synthetic ephedrine has proven benefits
and carries mandatory warning labels and has not
been shown to have the same severe side effects as
the ephedra herbal supplement.

Club inspectors miss foam material

Inspectors never reported seeing the
highly flammable and possibly illegal
foam covering the walls of a nightclub
where 98 people were killed in a fast-
moving fire last month, according to
documents released yesterday that raise
the possibility the inspections were
The documents - more than 60
pages covering three years of inspec-
tions at The Station by town building
and fire officials - do not mention

employees say was installed as
soundproofing in 2000.
Town Manager Wolfgang Bauer
could not say why the foam wasn't
noted in the reports. "They either didn't
see it or it wasn't there. Those are the
two possibilities," Bauer said.
Fire inspector Denis Larocque and
building inspector Stephen Murray did
not immediately return calls seeking
The club's stage manager and sound

engineer, Paul Vanner, said the foam had
been there since 2000. An attorney for
one of the club's owners said they had
no idea the material was dangerous.
"At no time were they ever told by
anyone that this foam was not appropri-
ate. I mean, they just didn't know it until
that night, sadly," said Kathleen Hagerty,
who represents co-owner Michael
The foam is believed to be a key part
of the investigation into the Feb. 20 fire
sparked by the pyrotechnics display of
the band Great White. Flames raced up

stage and roared through the club in
mere minutes.

burns like gasoline, was placed on the
walls shortly after Jeffrey and Michael

Hagerty said the brothers didn't

polyurethane. Aram DerManouelian,
president of American Foam Co.,

not immediately return a call. He has
said the club bought the cheapest
material available, and that the com-
